Why our sleep experts loved it

The Genoa White Wooden Bed Frame is a stylish and rustic addition to any bedroom. With a choice of premium Walnut or Sonoma oak effect top in grey or washed oak finish, it is sure to add character and warmth to any space. The bed frame has a panel wood mattress base for firm and consistent support, ensuring a comfortable night's sleep and a slightly firmer feel. It is available in Double and King sizes, making it suitable for a variety of bedroom spaces provided your rooms are not too small.

One of the standout features of the Genoa bed frame is its self-assembly design. While this may be convenient for some, it can also be a source of frustration for others. According to consumer reviews, the assembly process for the Genoa bed frame can be somewhat challenging. Some reviewers found the instructions confusing, with unclear pictures and inadequate written instructions. Others reported missing parts or mismatched holes, making the assembly process even more difficult. For those who were able to successfully assemble the bed frame, they generally found it to be sturdy and well-made. However, for those who struggled with the process, it can be a source of added frustration until the task has been completed.

In addition to the assembly process, a rare but vocal selection of customers appear to have had issues with the quality of the Genoa bed frame. While many praised the bed for its stylish appearance and good value, others found it to be poorly made. Some reported chipped edges or scratches on the frame, while others found it to be less sturdy than they had hoped. The base sliders, which are designed to allow the bed frame to be easily moved, were also a source of frustration for some reviewers as it seems that on carpeted surfaces, the sliders may catch, making it difficult to move the bed frame without damaging the carpet. Fortunately Bensons for Beds has fantastic customer support which rectified many of these issues on earlier batches and have since improved the packaging to fix this particular issue some had.

Despite these issues, many reviewers were satisfied with their Genoa bed frame. Some praised its comfort and stylish appearance, and found it to be a good value for the price. Others appreciated the convenience of being able to order the bed frame online and have it delivered directly to their door with many of the concerns being either addressed, or, justifiable given the low price point.

Ultimately, the Genoa White Wooden Bed Frame is a stylish and rustic addition to any bedroom. While it has its share of satisfied customers, it also has a number of detractors who had issues with the assembly process and the quality of the bed frame. Some reviewers also experienced problems with the delivery process. Despite these issues, many found the bed frame to be comfortable, stylish, and a good value product for the low price.

I liked this bed since I went to their store and I saw it. I was not sure, because some reviews mentioned: missing pieces, unresponsive customer service, damaged panels, etc. I am happy I ignored the bad reviews because the bad is beautiful, looks amazing, it's sturdy, looks expensive and classy, does not make any noise, and I love the panel wood mattress base, it makes the mattress firmer.

I didn't look at the reviews until after I ordered, and was mortified and honestly expected the worst! But to my surprise, the bed is lovely. It's extremely sturdy, you definitely need 2 people to build it as the pieces are solid wood and very heavy. I've not noticed any issues and I've had it for almost a month now, all the parts fit perfectly and no issues with delivery!

Good value for money but not that easy to assemble. Needed assistance to build and had to purchase additional 'twist lock' fasteners as some supplied were too long for the depth of pre drilled holes (pack had two lengths supplied, mainly correct ones, but looked like assembly kit had a few longer odd ones thrown in, to make up the number needed). Looks good assembled.

The Genoa bed and bedside cabinets look good but they were a nightmare to put up. The instructions were anything but clear - and a few steps were obviously missed out. The assembly should be offered as a value-add, and the instructions really need to be written out and explained better in the pictures. For this reason, the value for money isn't great.

Easy enough to build and is solid once completed. Only issue I have is the crappy base sliders that come packaged. If your bedroom has laminate flooring you're good to go if the bed needs to be moved. If the bedroom has carpet the base will catch the carpet, due to the crap crappy crap sliders!!

Was not happy with bed been delayed another three weeks .I had dismantled my old bed ready for my new one to arrive.only to be told by email that I would not get my new bed for a further three weeks. I feel I was not compensated for time delay and the inconvenience it caused me.

Not as solid as the last bed frame I purchased from Bensons, but I wanted this more for aesthetics really. It does scratch very easily (ordered the grey version), but it's exactly as I expected it to be so no disappointments here

Assembly was literally impossible - parts were missing and holes not existing where there should have been. Took whole day to build - not 2 hours as it says on the notice leaflet.

Fantastic bed, easy to build even on my own. I did the order of the build slightly differently due to space. So did the head and foot boards first then the main body of the bed.

I thought at the price this would be inferior quality but or wrong I was. Really well made, sturdy and through sheer stubbornness I put it together myself in a couple of hours.

The bed frame is a good strong frame and worth every penny. It is a good size and fits easily into the bedroom. It looks ok and is big enough to hold my mTatrass.
